About MeHello, my name is Mandy!
It's a little long, but here's all of the info you could want on me in regards to modeling. It includes why I want to model, my personality, physical traits, and related experience.
--Views on Modeling/Why I Want to Model--
I believe that models are one of the top facilitators of the arts- the ultimate canvas, if you will. A good model can become a medium to transform a stylist’s or designer’s work into moving art on the page or runway, bring life to a character through cosplay and acting, or create a recognizable figure to represent a brand name. Everyone thinks of nurses, teachers, etc. when they name careers that help others, but I think that models can contribute in their own way, too. I would love to be able to use my appearance and skill to improve myself and to help make others’ visions a reality.
This section is always a little awkward for me, so I’ll let someone else do the talking! :) It might be a little silly, but this description for Aquarius fits me pretty well, I think:
The most important fact about me is that I’m always looking to try new things. I would love to expand my horizons and try as many different types of modeling, projects, styles, etc. as possible!
--Physical Traits Not Covered By MM Questionnaire--
My hair color is listed as "other" because there's no option for dye. My hair is naturally a very dark brown, but I currently have it dyed. It is always a shade of red, and I will always redye and touch up roots before a job. I also own and am experienced with wearing wigs in different styles and more natural colors, and I would be willing to dye or cut my hair for long-term or well-paying work.
I answered “yes” to the question about allowing nudity, but I am not looking to feature in pornography. However, lingerie or swimsuits, as well as implied, partial, or full nudity are fine as long as they are tastefully done for art or fashion shoots. Ideally, I like the look of nudity in fashion magazines, museum displays, etc.
I personally feel that my best features are my legs, which the MM measurement info does not cover. My inseam is 34 inches, hipbone to floor is 39 inches, and my legs are well-toned from running and dance.
--Related Experience/Other Talents--
I’ve done a little bit of modeling before, in the form of figure modeling. I also have a little bit of experience that might help me develop useful skills for modeling and other performance-based jobs:
~Dance Experience: I’ve been a pop dancer for the last five or six years, which has greatly improved my flexibility, coordination, cooperation, and confidence. I also have a basic understanding of several types of ballroom dance, and have recently taken up pole dancing for exercise as well.
~Confidence/Being on Stage: Through my dance group, I am used to talking, dancing, and interacting with audiences at least once a month, and am very comfortable with being on stage as a result. I’ve also taken several courses on public and business speaking.
~Heels: I wear heels that are at least 2 inches high every single day, and 4-inch heels when my dance group performs, so there should never be an issue with tripping over footwear, whether I’m walking down a runway or simply standing all day.
~Photography and Video: For dance, I often participate in themed photoshoots which serve as promotional images for the group. In addition, we film dances and vlogs often, so I’m used to being on video as well.
~Education: Communications and East Asian Studies double major at a private university, plus study abroad experience in Asia and Europe. The former has helped me with most of the communication and media skills listed here, while EAS/study abroad have allowed me to become experienced at travel and intercultural communication(useful if I get to travel or participate in shoots with international companies), as well as become attuned to global trends in pop culture and fashion.
~Media, Marketing, and PR: Because marketing, PR, and social media are a core part of my studies, I believe that I could do well as a model/spokesperson for a product or company. I’ve also had hands-on experience with this, filling a variety of PR and marketing roles for various paid groups.
Thank you again for reading through my profile! If you have any more questions or feel that I may suit your project, please feel free to message me on this site, and I can provide a phone number or email from there.
